RB Leipzig midfielder Tyler Adams has admitted they are still hurting from their defeat to Liverpool but vowed the tie is not over yet.

Liverpool ran out 2-0 winners in the first leg of their last 16 clash with Leipzig last week, with goals from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane securing the win in the Puskás Arena.

It means the tie is firmly in their hands, heading into the second leg at Anfield on 10th March, with Leipzig needing at least two goals to cancel out the Reds away goals advantage.

Indeed, the pressure is very much on the Bundesliga side in the game, with them having failed to live up to expectations in the first leg.

They will need an almost perfect performance away from home if they are to progress and have any hope of matching last year’s run to the Champions League semi-finals.

Adams is more than aware of that and has warned Liverpool to expect a different team to the one they faced first time around.

“I am a very ambitious person; I hate to lose,” he told Sport Buzzer.

“It was really no fun; the wound is still open. But we still have a second leg. I am looking forward to it.

“They are very tough opponents, but we know we can play a better game than we did in the first leg.

“We know how difficult it will be. We conceded two goals, so we have to score at least three goals in the second leg. But we face the challenge. Before that, we never gave up.”
